    I usually use an iron on interfacing to back the bookmark. This way, the stitching is secure and I can add a trim border if I desire. Go to top

    It depends on what you like. I use the iron on interfacing because it adds stability, is not bulky, and it hides the back of the bookmark. You can blanket stitch the edges, use trim, ribbon or fray the edges. Iron on interfacing is used in sewing clothes and we sure don't want bulk in our clothes. Go to top
